STEP 8.

Since she has a lot of hair, I did one half portion for you. When you sketch her hair, add those straight lines and curls. Try staying close to the lines that represent the direction of the hair flow. This will help if you decide to shade it in.

STEP 12.

PENCIL STROKES & TONE, SHADING, TEXTURE -- For your convenience, I have inserted this step with different pencils, strokes to use. And you can study the shapes that make up this drawing universe, along with tone, shading, and texture.

STEP 13.

Best thing you can do when drawing hair is to establish the general shape then work in the main strands of hair by holding your pencil at a 45 degree angle for stroking and coverage. Then, as in the third picture, you can work in more details. But here's a TIP! Don't draw a straight line for the hairline. Do tiny strokes to represent beginning of hair at its root. Look at real people and see their hairline isn't a straight line. Practice and your picture will look more realistic.

STEP 14.

Here is the outline done with a 0.7mm mechanical pencil and the second picture shows the pencil blending with a blending stump. Look closely and see if your lines look something like this. You can erase if certain areas like the eyes or nose don't line up. Take you kneaded eraser and dab off the shadow outlines or dark lines with your kneaded eraser for a more realistic look as you shade. Shading transition from dark to light (or visa versa) should be smooth... no harsh lines. Be patient with this, it's not as complicated as you may think. As you do more pictures, this will come easier to you.

STEP 15.

I chose to shade with pastels. In a few strokes I've got area coverage. Applied light to medium gray to her face and neck. And medium to dark gray to her hair and shirt top. Here I used my blending stump to "draw" in more lines, add more shading to her hair eyebrows, nose, lips, neck, and shirt top. I needed to whiten areas like some hair strands and catch lights in her eyes, reflective light on the side of her face. I did this with a kneaded eraser.

STEP 16.

Here is the final result of shading for an example. I finished darkening areas with more dark gray pastels and my 9B Graphite Pencil. It has been a great pleasure to do this tutorial with you. Please fav, comment, and show your love here. Love, peace, happiness & success! *blowkiss*
